I will refer people to this Council Bluffs, IA Location. The entire staff I interacted with on my appointments day from coming in the entrance to when I was leaving was EXCELLENT.

My experience from the minute I walked in was extremely pleasant! Your secretaries were so friendly and helpful...being a secretary also, I appreciate them a lot. Jill-Kate and Dr. Bonnets were all such enjoyable people and I loved their enthusiasm for their jobs! Very glad I went there~beautiful new facility...not a fan of shots and Dr. Bonness and Kate made that so less scary for me-sense of humor goes a long way! Thank you to all who we met - see you again ... hopefully not too soon though...ha!
